Ok, so I Lied...Sort of

I told a lie by omission. There was a purpose though. My sister-in-law got engaged about a week and a half ago and her future family wanted us all to come down to Georgia for a celebratory dinner. This was all supposed to be a surprise so I didn't want to say anything and ruin it! We headed down with Matt's parents and arrived Friday. Surprise! It was a great weekend all around! Currently we are in the car on our way back up north (it doesn't really matter when you read this, we are probably still in the car). After we get back to Matt's parent's house we will finally be going to the Twin Cities on Wednesday. I loved all the suggestions I got for things to do there and can't wait to try them! I have some great posts scheduled and the link up tomorrow, but I will be back commenting on all your blogs next week. I still love reading all your comments though! 

For packing for so many different climates I chose items that could be mixed and matched easily like these shorts! See how else I've worn them in the past:

  3. I own these same shorts, finally took them home with me to Europe and I love them too. I think my favorite outfit you created with them is with the taupe tee and hat.


    Enjoy and relax this week. Looking forward to hearing back from you whenever time allows you to. =)

  25. We were in Columbus. I actually thought about emailing you, but there was so little time and I didn't have a car since my in-laws drove. Maybe next time we visit my sister in law we can arrange for a lunch date or something! :)
